Official Site | The Theory of Everything | Movie Overview

Synopsis: Starring Eddie Redmayne (“Les Misérables”) and Felicity Jones (“The Amazing Spider-Man 2”), this is the extraordinary story of one of the world’s greatest living minds, the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who falls deeply in love with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde. Once a healthy, active young man, Hawking received an earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of – time. Together, they defy impossible odds, breaking new ground in medicine and science, and achieving more than they could ever have dreamed. The film is based on the memoir "Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen," by Jane Hawking, and is directed by Academy Award winner James Marsh (“Man on Wire”).

I saw the premiere at the Toronto film Festival. Very good film. Eddie Redmayne is a sure best actor nominee for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking. What I liked about the film is how it humanized Hawking. It focuses less on his scientific genius than on his remarkable life and personal spunk, and his relationships – particularly with his first wife, upon whose book the film is based. PALS and CALS will empathize with Hawking’s MND progression as it is portrayed in the film.

I can't wait to see it. When ever I see him being interviewed he always seems to have such a big personality and zest for life as well as such brilliance! I saw a documentary on his personal life and I was quite impressed with his first wife!

His humor was big with John Oliver on HBO's "Last Week Tonight" back in April.
